It's funny how things work out, sometimes.

Yesterday I took delivery of the new-generation Mercedes-Benz S550 sedan and I have to say, it's downright remarkable. After taking it for its initial spin, I was literally flabbergasted out how it completely leap frogs everything else in its class, and even destroys cars much more upmarket.

Though I have heard it's a fantastic product, it's a shame no one is really capturing the essence of the story. I can't wait to tell you all about it!

Auto Express recently got behind the wheel of the all-new S63 AMG Coupe and as you'll see in the video below, it gave it a good 'ol fashion test. Though I am sure it could have provided more detail and actually put its neck on the line to describe how significant of a product it is, they cobbled together a short video about their experience.

Mercedes has a tradition of building fast, elegant coupes and traditionally it's always launched them with some sort of ground breaking technology. And it's the same story with the S-Class Coupe...

...All S-Class Coupe models feature intelligent headlamps, and the daytime running lights and indicator repeaters feature Swarowski crystals to produce a clearer light.

They also get a glass panoramic sunroof which in no way impedes on rear practicality. The sunroof can also be specced with Mercedes' 'Magic Sky' sunroof, which darkens the glass at the touch of a button.

It's clear than Mercedes has gone all out with the interior on the C-Class Coupe, and the cabin is different in terms of layout to the saloon.

The S63 AMG models also benefit from some sporty add ons, but rest assured - every model in the line-up oozes quality.

Like the S-Class saloon, the S-Class Coupe is supremely comfortable thanks to its air suspension, and the Magic Body Control improves this further.

However, the S-Class Coupe features some new ground breaking technology called Curve Tilt Control.

This system uses the car's computer controlled suspension to lean into the corner like a motorbike does in order to boost comfort.

The S-Class Coupe is also supremely quiet, despite being powered by a 5.5-litre biturbo V8 and being able to go from 0-62mph in 4.3 seconds.

The S63 AMG Coupe also comes with upgraded suspension, upgraded brakes and an MCT gearbox. The latter isn't the smoothest system in the world, but overall, it handles very well.

It's not an SLS though, but it's not supposed to be. It's been designed to be a very quick, gadget laden cruiser which is the most comfortable of its type on the market - and that's exactly what it is.
